Peter Ryan - Motivational Speaker & Paralympian

We are delighted to work with Irish Paralympian and motivational speaker Peter Ryan and manage his online brand presence. Peter's dreams once revolved around playing hurling for Tipperary but in 2010 his world was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON), a rare genetic disorder that left him with between five and ten percent peripheral vision in both eyes and legally blind.

Having hit rock bottom Peter began to take steps towards rebuilding his life and in doing so decided to re-engage with sport. His journey back began with a trip to UCD for a Paralympics Open Day in 2012, where he undertook a test on a watt bike which was to prove that he was a capable cyclist. Dial the clock forward to today and Peter competed in the Rio Olympics in 2016 and is set to compete in the Tokyo games.

Peter is a Wellness Ambassador with VHI and regulary gives corporate wellness talks. He is also a Fighting Blindness Ambassador and LIFT Ambassador.

The aim of our partnership with Peter is to elevate his digital presence and raise his overall brand profile.
